Organic Touchstone Gold Beet - From the breeders of Red Ace F1 and Guardsmark Chioggia comes an improved golden beet. Touchstone Gold offers higher germination rates, more uniform round roots and less zoning than standard golden types. Solid green tops are long and attractive, and quickly shade out weeds. Vibrant golden yellow flesh retains its color when cooked and is sweet and more mild than red beets. Best germination occurs in warm temperatures. (Beta vulgaris)

Days to maturity: 55 days
